If it was between Rowett, Monk and Coleman I’d pick Rowett each time.

 

Coleman seemed a nice bloke on the Sunderland documentary but career wise it seemed to harm him. Monk would’ve been top choice for me as he did very well at Birmingham under the circumstances there but his agent related bad press makes him a tricky choice PR wise. Rowett has had teams up and around the playoffs.

 

Someone left field might well be exciting but in reality they’d have to come in and change everything. Ironically that is what Birmingham did after they got rid of Rowett for Zola but their styles didn’t really mesh. 

It’s not the most exciting list at all. But Rowett is for me, the better of the choices. Monk seems to have had some decent jobs, done alright but nothing exceptional. Coleman for me is a complete no, his 2 full seasons in the Championship came at Coventry, finishing 17th and 19th. Even Sunderland, not saying it’s entirely down to him but he did manage from Sunderland from November onwards, nothing changed. He’s literally living off the Semi Final with Wales, but at club level he’s achieved nothing.

Neither both failures. Sick of same old mangers been recycled. At this rate give it Bullen on a temporary contract and asses from there,

 

no point appointing  anybody just for the sake of it.

I’d be up for Nigel Pearson with Bullen as his assistant.

Yep my feeling, of those touted, only Hughton or GVB look like stand out candidates, but would they take the job. All the others, you might be able to point to periods where they were successful, but more often or not, they’ve been serial failures.

Give it Bullen and ‘assess’ from there ?  

 

Assess from where !!? Christmas when we’re rooted to mid table and seasons essentially over ?  I just don’t get this mentality at all people are talking themselves into a Bullen appointment far too easily

Going by Bullen`s statement about taking the managers job "i will speak to the chairman when i get back from Germany"   it would seem nothing will be happening this weekend.

All this wait and see if someone becomes available. Who might suddenly become available? Someone like Sean Dyche wouldn't come to us. Who might suddenly become available in the Championship who could be rich pickings? Are we waiting for Paul Warne in League One?

Not for me.

 

We have staved off FFP (it seems) for the immediate future with the ground sale, but that can only happen once, and eventually we surely have to dial it back in terms of names such as Reach, Bannan, Fessi, etc, in order to avoid falling foul of the rules, if we are treading water in the Championship.

 

Can we afford, almost literally, to risk another mid-table finish? I massively doubt Bullen would see us finish in the top 6. Say what you like about Bruce, but we would have stood a much better chance this year had he not left for Newcastle.

 

I fear it would be another season written off if Bullen is given the job. And if it goes belly up, or we lose 5 or 6 on the spin, then a dedicated club servant will face the wrath of the crowds and, more than likely, the boot. Which would be an awful end to his Wednesday career.

Why it’s come to this is absolutely beyond me 

 

‘let’s just risk it’

 

‘Take a gamble on Bullen and we’ll ‘asses’ Things later’

 

Sounds absolutely awesome lads, can’t wait to hear you all screaming for Bullens head first time his inexperience shows

We could easily find ourselves n a similar predicament if we appoint one of the has beens on that list, but the problem will be worse, because we’ll have to pay them off to move them on

I don't think DC will be telling LB on the recruitments progress?

So let’s not even try to reduce the risk ?  Let’s just give up and throw the season away before it’s begun because we’re the Sheffield Wednesday fan base and apathy rules 

 

I’m holding out that Chansiri isn’t as negative as half the fans and sees we need some experience and can attract it because we’re a good club, with a decent squad that’s not far away from been able to compete in the top 6 and we don’t need to go chancing it on taking on our first team coach and hoping for best

If Mr Chansiri puts bullen in charge, it’s a sign that he’s giving up,  I don’t think he’s giving up, or at least I hope not, and I hope this episode with Bruce hasn’t made him say “fizz it”

Thats no offence to Bullen because the bloke bleeds blue and white but if we want a chance of going up we have to get this appointment right. And Bullen isn’t right.

Always wanted Paul Cook ..but it’s not going to happen.....being realistic...I reckon Rowett could be the cocky arrogant “wilder type” manager we need ...still in his 40s ...young enthusiastic...can imagine him creating a seige mentality with the players....no more soft touch Wednesday with him ....

Because all we have on the list at the moment is recycled has beens who have won bugger all and will cost a fortune.

 

There is no manager in that list  that guarantee anything, SB was an exception. Keeping Bullen in temp charge is not ideal times

if we are going for an "unproven" manager there has to be sexier names out there that will raise the profile of the club

Why not go and get someone already in a job. Show a bit of ambition instead of these depressing out of work managers. 

 

Because it would be difficult to attract a manager doing well where he is, to come here and work under ffp restrictions.

 

Maybe a foreign manager who wants a go in England, or a 1st div manager doing well....but then the not proven at this level would start.

The easy option is to opt for someone on the managerial roundabout, I don't think DC will do that.

Sometimes you just have to go with the hand dealt to you.

Stick or Twist?

Imo it will be Bullen or someone not yet on the list.

 

Just glad I decided against buying Wednesday, it's a reyt ballache:biggrin:
